    Hiya :)
    Just curious really, wondered if anyone knew how often Norwegian Forest Cats and Maine Coon's end up in rescues? They are 2 breeds I would really love to own, but I don't really want to go to a breeder as I like adults (although if any breeders had adults back to them that would be OK too).

    I don't have an awful lot of experience with MC's, but my Auntie has 3 norwegians and they are such wonderful big cats, I have cared for them and love them.

    Anyone know of any breeders in Scotland that might have adults sometimes, or if they come into rescue often? I know I definately don't want a kitten, so I realise I may have to wait a while! Further north in Scotland the better :thumbup:

    I'd still try the breeders because sometimes they retire ex breeding cats to pet homes :)

    Hi,

    I would try the rescues too,the Norwegian forest cat club often have adults for rehoming or the Viking cat club (Felis britannica club).

    If you go on to the MAine Coon breeders website and register with the rehoming section they keep you up to date with available rescues. They currently got two adult males available in Northumberland.
